The Sacco synopsis
What began as a local submerged state of two Italian immigrant anarchists accused of theft and murder has turned into an unprecedented political and legal scandal with the growing recognition that its condemnation was judicial ridicule and its execution is a political crime. This book is the first book to reveal the full national and international scope of the Sacco Vanzetti case.
It reveals how and why the two men became the center of a global cause that stunned public opinion and transformed America's relationship with the world. Drawing on extensive research on two continents, and writing it vividly, this book connects the Sacco Vanzetti case with the most political and social concerns of its time.
Moshik Tamkin claims that universal attention to the issue was not born only by the conviction that innocent men had been condemned for their radical policies and ethnic origins but also as part of a reaction to the isolation and global isolation of the United States after the First World War. He also argues that the international protest, which helped make my men Sacco and Vanzetti famous, eventually led to their execution.
The book ends with an investigation into the consequences of continuing injustice and what it reveals about global political action, terrorism, the majority, xenophobia and the politics of our times.
